Introducing Captain Dave Goodman

Bel Ami is a private sailboat owned and operated by Captain Dave and Admiral “Admirable” Bobbie Rae. The Caribbean Islands is our playground, and we call the Virgin Islands our home base. Virgin Islands sailing is some of the best sailing grounds in the world, with islands spaced closed together making for short sails and lots of time for land based activities such as visiting beaches, hiking, shopping. The Virgin Islands are amongst the most beautiful and scenic of the Caribbean Islands, and make for the most romantic caribbean getaways for couples, especially in a private sailboat. If you are a couple seeking a couples holiday or couple getaway, you really can’t do much better than this.




Admiral “Admirable” Bobbie Rae Goodman hails from Louisiana by way of Green Bay Wisconsin. She has a degree in horticulture and has operated her landscaping/gardening business in Green Bay Wisconsin for over 30 years. Looking to make a change in her life and to escape the Wisconsin winters, Bobbie joins Captain Dave aboard Bel Ami as hostess with the mostess, not to mention galley wench extraordinaire. Although Captain Dave continues to do most of the cooking (he loves to eat and loves to cook!), Bobbie provides an invaluable service in entertaining guests aboard Bel Ami. Her bright smile, warm personality and wonderful spirit of living are infectious. She is an accomplished artist, and recently started to experiment in metal sculpturing. Her work has been exhibited in various outdoor settings, adding beauty to the natural environment.
